The-Ozone Staff Picks: Wisconsin at Ohio State
One of the great things about this job is our ability to help people live out their dreams. That happened last week when everyone here agreed to steer clear of a correct prediction so that one of our long-time forum posters could win the week. That poster was Crabapple Buck, who won the week with his 51-3 prediction. As you may remember, Ohio State went...
Ohio State 45
If it rains
Ohio State 35
i hate rainy weather .. it DOES negate speed of OSU some And the last big game we had in the rain we lost in 2015 at home… But this is a different team and a different year and weather should never ever be an excuse because both teams have to play in it… While I do prefer it to be sunny instead and I do think Wisconsin is legitimate I think our buckeyes are for real and they win in a tough battle overall but pull away to win 30.17... go Bucks!
Well, I feel like we have our Annual Bad Game this week - and to me that means Ohio State wins 27-24.
I would prefer 52-6 but... I'll take a win, I guess.
It will rain. I expect a low scoring game which the Buckeyes win by 7-10.
Interesting to see how we do against the Wisconsin run game. Even Northwestern was able to find some creases in the Buckeye defense last week.
I think we will need more QB running this week to loosen up the Wisky D for Dobbins and Teague.
I think we come in with a good plan. If we are even or better in the turnover battle we win. 38-24 Bucks
Break out the crack pipe. Nobody is scoring 35 tomorrow. The Buckeyes 17-9.
Wisconsin will indeed come in angry - and over-correct. Wisconsin backs tend to fumble in big games - Melvin Gordon had one near the goal line against the Bucks a few years ago and Taylor fumbled against Illinois. In the rain with the stakes this high I can see at least 2 fumbles by the Badgers helping break their chances.
Ohio State 42
Wisconsin will expose the Buckeyes linebackers by running at them and play action passes to the running backs. They will double Chase Young and nobody else will get to the QB. Offense will sputter against a really good defense. I hope Im wrong but I have it 21-17, Wisconsin.
The game is in Columbus not Madison. Wisc will not hold OSU to 17. Heck OSU will score 17 alone in the 2nd qtr in the rain and win the game 42-14 with Okudah or Wade getting a pick 6.
After this game Wisconsin will need a lot of help to compete just for the West Division title (don't think they get enough). ZERO chance that Bucky can hold the Buckeyes under 30 points. Yep, they're a good team but they're nowhere in the vicinity of being good enough to slow the Buckeyes down.
Maybe the thing most predictors are missing is this game we will actually play full out the whole game. We have never done that in any game this year really. Thus I think a forth quarter score or two will easily get the bucks in the 40’s and maybe over 50.
The game hasn't lost its sizzle regardless of what so many hack writers have said this week. Wisconsin was overrated before they lost and they have very little chance of an upset against a much more talented and better coached OSU. It may be the first time Fields will be forced to win a tough game. I'm not fond of the rain.
I think you'd better put that pipe away. Nobody is holding the Buckeyes to 17 points.
Crackheads. Who said we were going score 40?
Hank, stop it! get some help. LOL
